You do a lot online to get recognized, but are you really being heard by the right customers? Are people talking about your brand? Are you listening and communicating? If not, your brand is not interesting, and that means you are invisible. If your marketing campaign is not effectively reaching its target audience to excite them in the right ways, you may not be making the most out of your time online.
So, how can you make your brand interesting? Easy, give people a reason to talk about you.
Dust off that old marketing plan and take a fresh look at what can be done to transform your brand into something more engaging that customers will want to interact with. Branding today is much more than a shiny, new logo; it’s about reinventing your company with a new spark of life into everything you do. Think about what your company stands for. Why do customers like you, and why do they not? Redefine your goals and transform your business into what the customers want it to be, not what you think it should be. After all, it’s their interest that keeps this boat afloat. And if your rebranding is done the right way, by a professional, talented and savvy creative team, it will generate lots of interest and excitement around your company.
One of the best ways to stir up some excitement and chatter about your brand is to plug into social media. There are some really innovative and unique ways to leverage a variety of social media platforms. Don’t be afraid to jump in head first to fully submerge yourself in the creative and interactive world of social media. With enough pizzazz behind your social engagements, the fans will start stacking up and new opportunities will arise. But I can tell you this, it certainly won’t happen on its own, so get out there and start communicating. Not sure how to get started? Try making an exciting video to share through YouTube and your social media channels. If that’s not your style try creating insightful dialogue on Facebook and Twitter that gets fans interacting. If you’re still not feeling that creative spark, don’t hesitate to drop us a line for some new ideas.
